The Quarterly Summary of State and Local Government Tax Revenue provides quarterly estimates of state and local government tax revenue at a national level, as well as detailed tax revenue data for individual states. This quarterly survey has been conducted continuously since 1962. The information contained in this survey is the most current information available on a nationwide basis for government tax collections.
This is a recurring quarterly survey of state and local tax revenue, as well as detailed tax revenue data for individual state governments. The state data covers the fifty state governments, as well as all dependent state-level governmental entities.
While the state data records are ultimately from state government sources, the classification of taxes among the different categories is the responsibility of the U.S. Census Bureau. Therefore, tax classification might not reflect the actual classification or presentation as supplied by the various state government respondents.
The survey measures tax revenues of state and local governments on a calendar quarter basis.
